Very good fight. Groves’ fights are always fun to watch because he’s both exciting and flawed. Gutknecht is a bit stiff and slow, he landed some good shots though at times though and being the bigger man he took well most of Groves’ right hands. Groves should be given a shot at a major title again soon enough.
